Drug Clopidogrel & Aspirin

When should we give clopidogrel, and is it safe to give it with aspirin?

clopidogrel is for stroke/MI when a patient is already on aspirin.... in those cases switching to clopidorgel is needed from aspirin ( or dipyridamole is added).

sorry cant seem to remember case of using aspirin with clopidogrel - probably was an indication.

according to uw, clopidogrel should be given alone as it has shown no benefit when used with asprin in the clinical trials.... I hope it helps
